Auger Torque brings cutting edge products to market to meet consumer demand

Auger-Torque

Auger Torque has been expanding its range of earthmoving attachments; recently showing its latest products at shows including the recent Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo.

MULCHING

This includes a multipurpose mulcher that has been developed for applications including ground clearance, tree and hedge trimming and removal, and tackling overgrown ditches.

The mulcher is built to meet the needs of a variety of end users and is suitable for excavators, ranging in size from 5 to 15 tonnes, as well as skid steer loaders. This mulcher provides working widths of 1m or 1.5m and has the unique feature of being able to quickly change the whole tooth drum instead of individual teeth (with tungsten, hammer and fail tooth options available) saving a lot of time in the process, says Auger Torque.

Other features include a hinged cover to contain debris and allow easy access to the tooth drum, a low-profile design for ultimate visibility, and a robust motor and gearbox concealing the gears and bearings to prevent dust and dirt ingress. Excavator and skidsteer mounting options can be attached at the same time, heavy duty transmission belts are used to increase the service life by 15 per cent, and a pressure and flow safety valve protects the motor from pressure spikes and excessive flow.

EARTH DRILLS

Two new earth drills have been bought to market to extend the current Auger Torque range. The 65,000 max earth drill is suitable for excavators between 21 and 45 tonnes and the 100,000 max is suitable for up to 50 tonnes. This larger version is geared towards high torque applications, including: pre-augering, foundation piles, screw pile installations, deep hole engineering and well boring.

As with the other earth drills in the range, these are built with in house manufactured hydraulic motors and a unique planetary gearbox, giving high efficiency and extreme durability, says the company. With forged hood ears, hood pins are locked for extra security, making it impossible for the hood to detach from the hitch, making it suitable for the toughest conditions.

As always, the earth drills are built with the unique non-dislodgement shaft, a single piece drive shaft assembled top down and locked into the earth drill housing. This design guarantees that the shaft will never fall out, making for a safer work environment, not only for the operator but for the surrounding workers, says Auger.

MAST-BASED DRILLING RIG

The mast-based drilling rig is designed for accurate, quick and efficient drilling of large quantities of equal diameter holes, suited to applications such as auger drilling, and down hole hammer applications as well as pre-drilling for pile driving, dewatering, permanent retaining walls and auger cast piles. This high-performance hydraulically driven auger attachment is compatible with excavators from 12 to 15 tonnes, with a torque range of 2,717–8,152Nm. This drilling rig can move from one application to the next with ease, and being excavator mounted offers a quicker and more cost-effective method compared to more specialized heavy equipment, says the company.
